seventeen years of age, this humble memorial is raised by Alexander M'Donald, printer.

REAR VERSE:

"How are the roses on that cheek decayed,

Which late the purple light of life displayed!

Health in her form each sprightly grace bestowed,

With life and thought each speaking feature glowed,

Fair was the blossom, soft the vernal sky,

Elate with hope, we deemed no tempest nigh:

When, lo! sore trouble's overpowering gust,

Left all it beauties mouldering in the dust."

Margaret Maver, mother of Margaret Mudie, died on the 19th May, 1815, and is here interred
